With its warm materials and cool design, Fontesecca is a modern interpretation of a traditional Umbrian farmhouse. Brought to life by the design team at Special Umbria, the project was completed in July 2022.

Fontesecca is a 350sqm villa that has been built on the site of a derelict farmhouse, from which as many materials as possible were repurposed for the new building. The house’s unique location, tucked into the hills just five minutes from Città della Pieve, offers picture-book views towards the pretty hilltop town, a valley on one side, the Val di Chiana the other, and Tuscany beyond. You can book it here!
